I have been browsing the Internet for Norwegian literature, but I haven't found any reliable site to buy from. Has anyone bought Norwegian books through the Internet? If so, could you please post some reliable sites? One of the biggest problems I have encountered is the shipping being over 25€, when shipping to Portugal.
If anyone has any suggestions, please do tell.

Thanks in advance.

The London bookshop Grant and Cutler have a very small selection of Norwegian literature. Postage seems to be from £4.50 per book to continental Europe.

Thanks stelingo. I found a Norwegian site which seems to ship fairly cheap for continental Europe. I've ordered Drageløperen for kr. 99 and the shipping costs were kr. 90. In the end I paid around 20€, for the book plus shipping costs.

The site is: http://www.norli.no/

Edit: I ordered it today so I don't know if the site is reliable, but a Norwegian friend said the store was serious. I'll keep you posted whether the book arrives or not.

Norli is the biggest bookstore in Norway. You shouldn't have any problems with ordering from them.

You were right. The book arrived today. Fast shipping and low shipping costs, totally recommended. The package even comes with a reclamation sheet for you to fill out if you have any reclamations to do. I'm very pleased with the store, will definitely order some more books there.

I'll have to try that store. I wanted to order something from another Norwegian store some weeks ago but didn't do it when I saw shipping would cost like 25 Euro for one book.

I would recommend www.bokkilden.no for Norwegian books.

It seems like Norli.no doesn't ship outside of Norway anymore? Or am I missing something?

What would be a good store to order Norwegian books to be shipped to the United States at this moment?
